Aussies resort to underhand tactics as Cooke has to leave field after being deliberately hit

in the goolies by Aussie struck ball.

 

 

Australian commentator heard to say "You have to smile"

 

Cricketing quotes, Geoffrey Boycott on facing a fast ball

"To have some idea what it's like, stand in the outside lane of a motorway,

get your mate to drive his car at you at 95 mph and wait until he's 12 yards

away, before you decide which way to jump."

Ponting, he who it it said washes his hair in vegemite, is reported to have accused England of cheating by scratching the ball.

Wouldn't you? Cooke was just seeking a bit of relief after being so unjustly assaulted.

The old ones are always worth repeating

####

Bill Woodfull v Douglas Jardine

England captain Douglas Jardine complained to counterpart Bill Woodfull about Australian players swearing at him, to which Woodfull replied:

“Now which of you bastards called this bastard a bastard?”

####

Ian Botham v Rodney Hogg

After Hogg lost his balance while bowling and fell at Botham’s feet:

Botham: “I know you think I’m great Hoggy, but no need to get down on your knees.”

308 all out, only to be expected.

Heroic Captain Cooke has managed 4 runs inspite of being impeded by an ice pack down each trouser leg.

True stiff upper lip, what?

###STOP PRESS###

Heroic Capt. Cooke makes double figures despite his painful handicap.

Some say should he not be rested as he is clearly not feeling himself.  

KP might be available!

1804BST.  261-8. Can England manage a 400 run lead? Ali batting, made 77 1st innings, currently 12.

I feel a sharp intake of breath coming on :baby:

At close  of play England close with a 2nd innings score of 289 leaving thew Aussies 411+ to win, two days left and rain forecast for Sunday. As "planned" (for the conspiracy theorests amongst you)the pitch has started to turn & bounce. Dont write the Aussies off just yet! But I do wonder why the sledging has reduced to a whimper 

Good to have a bit of competition

Who was that, 1 Hr had gone by he's probably out by now. 

Good luck anyway, you're going to need it - only another 225 runs ^_^ you can do it!  There again you're not playing are you  :smile:

Problem is, it might end up 2000/4 both first innings combined with the way they are talking about the pitch. Good toss to win I think. Gives the guys some time in the middle at least for the rest of the series.
